Thanks Dave. I did find a discussion on Tom’s site.
on Tom Volk’s website. I think he may have been involved in some of the research.
I’ll have to ask around.
for which I have no answer. But, I suppose this has been done, as the understanding of the way these two types of fungus interact is relatively recent.
Yes. If sequenced, would the Armillaria sp. be ID’d or just the Entoloma sp.?
is the accepted name for these fungi, although the actual fruit bodies are likely Armillaria mushrooms that have been parasitized by the Entoloma fungus.
